If you are still using an old version (v2.0.0 -> 2.0.9) of VLC, consider upgrading to the latest version of VLC, the setup instructions are easier and does not require the Host Configuration application.

To allow the iPhone/iPad  Sybu Remote Control for VLC app to connect to VideoLan VLC media player v2.0.0 -> v2.0.9, several VLC settings must be configured.

 This can either be done manually -or- automatically by our configuration application.

For manual configuration, or if you prefer not to download and install the Host configuration application, you can follow the manual VLC configuration instructions here.

For automatic configuration, download the Sybu Data Remote for VLC – Host Configuration application for Mac OSX, Microsoft Windows or Ubuntu.
